Property description

Picture yourself far away from the stresses in your life. Away from work, the hunny-do list, away from the daily grind, traffic, junk mail, bills, errands...You wake up in the morning refreshed and the first sounds you hear are the wind in the lodge pole pines and the birds. As you lay there you contemplate “What shall I do today?”... Take the two minute drive to the Rocky Mountain National Park and continue up Trail Ridge Road for spectacular views of the great divide... perhaps go hiking or just see what wildlife there is to see... or maybe just hang out on the deck at the cabin for the wildlife viewing, as our year round residents the moose and deer do often cross the property. Yes, maybe just hang out at the cabin. Play a game of horseshoes, put together a puzzle, sit in the comfortable lounge chairs with a cold drink and read or take a nap in the hammock surrounded by evergreen, aspen and wild flowers. It’s a delight just to walk around the cabin and discover that each room is decorated with a different theme and each has its own unique bear.

Perchance, if you get inspired, you’ll take the 1 mile walk around Columbine Lake and stop at the access points for more fabulous views of the mountains around the area while you let the kids play on the playground at the shore. Maybe tomorrow you’ll want to venture out for golfing in a beautiful backwoods golf course, there is plenty of opportunity for fishing, boating and exploring on picturesque Grand Lake, Shadow Mountain Lake and Lake Granby as the three are connected. Be sure to take a walk down the boardwalk in the old west village of Grand Lake for a wonderful meal at one of the superb restaurants or to do a little shopping. You can’t forget to pick up souvenirs for all those people at home that aren’t getting to enjoy the same things you are.

For those of you that can’t quite get away from it all we’ve included a computer equipped with high speed internet access and a wireless connection if you bring your own.

Whatever you decide to do you’ll enjoy your stay in the “Not Forgotten Cabin” where everything you need is there to make your stay delightful.
